Progress and challenges in pipeline theft detection

With inflation spiking in several countries around the world, causing a cost-of-living crisis in many, there's been a renewed interest from thieves in targeting pipelines for fuel theft.

Fortunately, significant improvements have been made in the last few years to provide futureproof technologies to pipeline operators that stay ahead of evolving theft methods. These technologies have been deployed on many pipelines around the world and have been successful in detecting and locating illegal tapping points. In some cases, these solutions have helped reduce and even deter further theft activities.

This paper explores the improvements that have been made to theft detection technology and how they have been applied to different countries around the world.
